The winery as a living heritage that we aim to preserve.

With a history spanning more than 250 years, the Quinta displays a set of traditional white buildings, still built on different levels today, from where we can appreciate the original winery building dating from 1764, one of the oldest in the Douro region.

Alongside the traditional architecture and buildings that are part of the estate’s history, in the first demarcated zone of the Douro, the economic importance of “Feitoria wines” (the Feitoria designation indicated the finest quality wines in the first demarcated region) was assumed from an early age.

The zone where the grapes are received enables a high degree of rigour in the winemaking process. All the bunches of grapes are separated by size and the necessary seeds and stems are removed. The high-precision winemaking approach and the diversity of the estate’s 41 vineyard plots fostered an alliance between traditional processes and sophisticated technology, with the addition of two fully automated grape presses, where each harvest is guided by human hand rather than the other way around.

The "Atelier do Vinho", built in the old granite grape presses, includes a small handcrafted winery to treat certain chosen wines as study works, paying meticulous attention and care in the production of iconic wines.

An underground tunnel with a historic wine cellar, where only a few wines are stored, links the underground area of ​​the winery to the wine tourism activity - Patamar Kitchen - a very welcoming space, offering excellent view over the Douro valley and river.
